Monuments

Monaco proudly bears the standard of dreams and glamour around the world but it is, above all, a tourist destination with a remarkable heritage and an outstanding wealth and variety of sites, museums and excursions.
Statue of Juan Manuel Fangio
This statue sculpted by Joaquim Ros Sabaté is a tribute to the Argentine motor racing driver.  There are six such statues around the world, all identical, in Buenos Aires (Argentina), Monaco, Montmeló (Spain), Nürburg (Germany), Stuttgart (Germany) and Monza (Italy). Juan Manuel Fangio is seen by many as the greatest driver in history. In seven full seasons in Formula One, he was world champion five times (with four different teams) and runner-up twice.
